Best & Worst Foods For Kids During Monsoon Season

One easy way to take care of your kids during the rainy season is to plan monsoon foods for them. We all know that during monsoon, the body is more Sensitive to catch an infection and digestive process in kids slows down during monsoons.  Every care has to be taken to avoid such conditions. The need is to make the body strong internally and develop the immune system. With a strong immune system, diseases can be kept away.

So, Here i am going to share some best and worst foods for kids during this monsoon:-

Best Foods For Rainy Season

1) EGG  :  Egg is full of protein and a complete meal in itself. With one egg every day, your child is bound to get a good dose of all required vitamins, minerals and proteins along with the power to fight colds and coughs. Its warmth giving quality is just ideal for the monsoon.

egg

2)  Garlic :  Any food with garlic is a good bet in the monsoon, mainly because garlic is packed with antioxidants. It helps boost the body’s immunity and also regulates the metabolism. You can add garlic to any foods you cook for your child for added taste as well as benefit.

3) Milk :  Kesar, turmeric  is a spice that contains plant derived chemicals and is found to be very helpful in preventing diseases. This makes it one of the helpful monsoon foods for kids. Mixed with milk, it becomes a power drink for child.

milk

4 )  Soups :  Be it vegetarian or non-vegetarian, soup is comforting and beneficial every way. Add some pasta to the soup and make it a complete meal. A soup is always one of the healthy foods for kids.

sups

5 ) Ginger  :   During monsoon, the immune system becomes weak and the stomach is prone to catch infection. Consuming ginger is an excellent way to keep the stomach healthy and free of infection.

6) Almonds  :   These nuts are a great snacking option any time of the year, but during monsoon, they give your kids an extra protective cover against various diseases. Almonds are packed with digestive fibre which regulates the metabolism and prevents onset of tummy issues – otherwise a common problem during monsoon.

Worst Foods For Rainy Season

  1. Dahi /Yoghurt  :  The monsoon is the time when many children fall prey to seasonal illnesses such as cold and cough. Yogurt is known to aggravate the problem of sinusitis when consumed at this time. This happens mainly because of its cooling nature. Also avoid other curd-based foods. It could worsen your child’s cough or congestion.

dahi

2 ) Indo-Chinese Street Food  :   Kids love the street-side Chinese food that is very popular in India. However, this is not a safe food for monsoon season. During the rainy season, chances are high that the water used for preparation could be contaminated. The food could also be infected by germs from flies and insects.

3) Soft Drinks :   I am/expert not saying this only to avoid risk of cold and fever. Experts say that fizzy drinks reduce the minerals in our body, and this can reduce enzyme activity. The end result is that the digestive system gets weaker at a time when the body is already at risk of digestive issues. Overall, not a healthy food in rainy season at all!

4)  Sea Food :   Monsoon is the breeding season for some fish and prawns and this can impact the quality and/or taste. Fish can also turn bad rapidly in the humid and wet weather. It is better to stick to poultry items such as chicken.

O3+ Hydrating & Soothing Face Wash Review

I am going to give review of o3+ hydrating & soothing face wash review.  I have combination skin and in winters it becomes dry. So I have to be very cautious and very particular about my skin care regimen. This O3+ Face Wash has a very soothing and moisturising effect on the skin to make it feel comfortable after wash. The purifying formula brightens complexion and evens out skin tone to make your skin look flawless and clear. Ideal for those with normal to dry skin, this cleanser washes in hydration so your skin doesn’t feel dry  after wash.

PRICE : 225 INR for 50gm

This face wash comes in a white tube with a white flip top cap. The packaging is a little disappointing as you don’t know how much of product is left! The cap has a small nozzle through which the product is squeezed out.

face wash is gel based milky white fluid and has a runny consistency. The face wash requires only a small amount of face wash for a single cleansing. Also,The face wash has a very pleasant mild fragrance as that of glycerin and aloe vera. It eventually fades away after few minutes of rinsing.

The reason I love this face wash is because I can feel my skin is fresh and clean and I don’t feel my skin tightening as it does whenever I use face wash.

REASON TO LOVE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT : 

  • Travel friendly
  • Hydrating and soothing
  • Suitable for normal to dry skin
  • creamy texture
  • pleasant smell
  • Gently cleanses the skin

REASON  NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT :

  • runny texture
  • not suitable for oily skin

Colorbar BB Cream

Hi Everyone,

I am going to give review of colorbar BB Cream. Perfect match technology which makes the BB cream adapt to your skin tone and blend perfectly. It provides sheer coverage with radiant glow, Paraben free, nourishing, protecting & moisturising skin, sun protection.

img_7235

Price : 550 INR 

MY EXPERIENCE AND PRODUCT DESCRIPTION :

This cream comes in a sleek tan plastic tube with a silver screw cap. The consistency of the cream is quite thin. I have observed that it is kind of soaked up very quickly by cleaned skin. So I need to be real quick to blend it before it gets dried and patchy. According to my experience the cream glides smoothly on moisturised skin or on primer rather than dry and just cleaned skin.

The BB Cream texture is somewhere in between a mousse or a whipped foundation and a thick full coverage liquid foundation. Though the consistency is really good, it does tend to apply patchily, especially on dry skin. I have combination skin and I definitely cannot use this alone. I always moisturise before using this. Oily skinned people might find this would work pretty well for them.

 

REASON TO LOVE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT  :

  • Travel Friendly.
  • Contains SPF 20.
  •  Feels very light on the face.
  • Good staying power.
  • Adds a soft glow to the skin.
  • Contains SPF 20.
  • No parabens.
  • Gives a very natural look.

REASON  NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT  :

  • Dry skinned ladies need to apply a moisturiser beneath it.
  •  No ingredients list.
  • Strong  fragrance.

MotherDaughterBlog Rating : 4 Out of 5

Overall,  BB Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 20 and light formula. It blends easily without leaving a white cast. Coverage is light and one can increase it by adding powder on top of it. If you are looking for more coverage this product might disappoint you.
